To have a vegetable garden, it is not enough to plant your favorite vegetables to chance. Some plants will get married with each other while others will be hurt if they are planted side by side.

 

Think of varying


 

The first rule is to practice the alternation. By cultivating the same plants year after year, the soil quality will be altered. The vegetables will consume the nutrients they need to grow and they will then decrease more and more for subsequent plantings. Each plant has a different needby alternating cultivated plants, you will ensure the good performance of your land. This practice of alternating is called crop rotations.

 

Organization of the vegetable garden


 

Each plant needs and rejects various nutritional elements. We consider there are three types of vegetables:

- Root vegetables (carrot, turnip ...).

- Vegetables grains (lentils, beans, peas).

- Leafy vegetables (lettuce, cabbage, spinach ...).

 

The ideal would be to organize your garden into zones or districts. On each zone, assign one of three types of vegetables defined above. Each year and each zone you will then rotate the type of vegetable. On the zone where were the root vegetables, vegetable grains you plant. Or on areas with vegetable grains, you plant leafy vegetables. After cultivation of leafy vegetables, plant root vegetables or let the land rest one year. It is better, every 4 years, to let the land rest by sowing a suitable fertilizer. Thus you will always get optimum performance from your garden.
